FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MONTEL WILLIAMS STATEMENT:

“I had always intended this letter to remain private. While I appreciate the Mexican Embassy’s ‘response’ it was non-responsive to the letter I sent. Sgt. Andrew Tahmoooressi suffers from severe PTSD – he has now been confined for more than 5 months. The very nature of PTSD is that its severity often increases over time without treatment. The Mexican Government has provided no such treatment.”
“I understand New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is in Mexico for meetings with President Nieto, and that is why I am releasing this letter tonight. I implore┬áhim to press for Andrew to be released on humanitarian grounds so that he may return to the United States to seek treatment.”
